Christina: Winter Reading
"Books in Winter" by Jessie Wilcox Smith


I have had from childhood
A love of books
And I can think of no better pleasure
Than to sit indoors
On a cold and snowy day
With the treasure
Of a new book,
And read the day away......
Curled up, snug and warm,
Looking forward to
Traveling the world,
unraveling a mystery
Or reading words that rhyme.
I can think of no better way
To spend my time...
while the north wind bangs
against my window pane
in a futile rage,
I am transported, I meet new people
And learn about different places
With the simple turning of a page.
